MCV Interview: Harmonix

Dominic Sacco sat down with CEO Alex Rigopulos to talk about competing with Guitar Hero

When you step into Harmonix’s Cambridge, Massachusetts offices, it’s immediately clear this is no ordinary developer. The staff look more like rock star musicians than developers. The shelves lining the lobby strain with the weight of numerous gaming awards, too many to count or list here.

Like the music game developer itself, the city it resides in oozes creativity. Boston is home to Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology – two of the most respected educational facilities in the world, the latter of which is where Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos picked up the skills that would later inspire Guitar Hero and Rock Band.
